HAZUS-MH CDMA training

The Indiana Department of Homeland Security is sponsoring a free three-day L317: Comprehensive Data Management for Hazus-MH course from Tuesday, May 24 to Thursday, May 26, 2011 on the Valparaiso University Campus in northern Indiana. is not sure how/if IDHS will support non-Indiana folks who want to attend this course.

This course focuses on updating the HAZUS-MH inventory. It is recommended for GIS analysts, database administrators, and others who will be responsible for migrating local data into the HAZUS-MH database structure.

The course provides an overview of the methodologies that were used to develop and compile the HAZUS-MH provided inventory. However, emphasis is placed on the use of the Comprehensive Data Management System (CDMS) and other tools developed by FEMA for HAZUS-MH users interested in improving the accuracy of hazard loss estimations by integrating local building, infrastructure, and population related data into the HAZUS-MH analysis process. Numerous hands-on exercises will empower participants with the skills to use CDMS as well as other tools to update both HAZUS-MH state geodatabases and study regions. The course will also help participants effectively prepare for their own data updating projects by identifying those inventory elements that have the most impact on the estimation of losses for flood, earthquake, and hurricane events.
